  1. This is an absolutely amazing compilation! Thank you for pulling it all together in one place :-)

  2. WOW! That is one generous and informative collection!
    If you ever make a grab button for this page of your website, I would love to put it onto my blog page. I know I will look at it a lot.
    Thank you so much!

    1. Hi Nessa, I just added a 'grab it' button at the bottom of this post and also on the right sidebar. I tested it and think it works if you wanted to try it! Thanks for the suggestion.

  3. Thanks Lisa! I read quite a few of your blogs and I can't remember everything so I come back to the same blogs often. This is a great compilation.
    Congratulations on your book. I ordered it last week and I can't wait to read it.
    On a sadder note, I lost one of my 12 week old baby girl yesterday. One of the babies that was raised by my faverolles. She was resting a lot the day before and yesterday morning she was hiding behind a flower pot. When I cleaned the coop under the roosts, I found a big wet spot in the wood shavings right under where she slept the night before. She had diarrhea. She didn't have any other signs of sickness (eyes, feathers, comb, vent etc...) So I put her in a dog cage with straw, water and food and checked on her often. She was lying down and breathing heavily but with her mouth closed. 3 or 4 hours later,she was dead. At the bottom of the cage in the tray under the straw, I found a watery stool with yellow stuff. It looked like water with yellow pollen floating.
    But I found round worms in just 1 poop a few weeks ago. I gave the whole flock your pumpkin soup recipe, they have nasturtium in the coop and I cut some of the leaves and flowers that I put in there food and DE. They ate melons, cucumbers all summer as a treat. And I haven't found any worms since. The rest of the poop is normal. No signs of coccidiosis.
    So I don't really know what is the cause of death. It's always very sad to loose a pet.
    Well, thanks again and best of luck finding your new home.

    1. Oh I'm sorry Joyce. It's so hard to lose one and often we will never know why. They hide their symptoms so well and by the time you even realize something is wrong its too late.

      Good job on the worms tho - I'm always happy to hear that natural remedies do work.

  4. Thanks for sharing this, all your advice is so helpful. I shared some of your herbal chicken keeping tips on my last blog post (and off course a link to your wonderful blog)
    Kindest regards from the french alps!
